I am so excited to see all the activity on my blog.

I just want to say Thank You all for stopping by and taking a look.  Please leave me some messages as I would love to hear from you.  My visitor counter still isn't working right. It shows that I now have had 49,073 visitors.

Don't forget, I am having a mystery hostess drawing on November 1st for all purchases made in October.  Here is a link to my website where you can join the Mystery Hostess Gathering.

I am working on some goody bags for Halloween and although they are a work in progress I wanted to share what I have done so far.

The Bag in a box is from the Scardy Cat paper pack and the characters are from Frightly Fun B1453 and Trick or Treat Sweets B1460.
I used some Stampin' Up punches and the Artphilosophy Cricut Cartridge for the shapes.  I still have to make the handles and fill them. 
Here are the masks I cut from the Chic and Scary Cricut cartridge for our Safety/ Halloween party that is open to the public.  It will be on Sunday October 26, 2014 at the VFW 1324 Post 104 Tumwater Dr, Oregon City, OR 97045 from 2-5 pm. 
Tumwater Dr. over looks the Falls in Oregon City. 
Here I took the basic shapes and created animals with just a few scrap pieces of paper.

Here is the big project that I have been working on.

The Ladies Auxiliary National President Ann Panteleakos is coming to our Post for a visit on Sunday and we are serving dinner.  Several of us get together on Thursday nights and craft.  We decided to make table decorations for her visit.  I will have more pics on Sunday night or Monday as I am also the Historian and will be there for the event.  Here are a couple pictures of what we made.
 We made decorations for 26 tables that seat 8 people.  We are expecting over 100 people to join us from all the surrounding area Auxiliary's including local officials. This event is open to the public.

I just hope I'm not spoiling any surprises by posting this.  I am just so excited that it is all coming together so nicely.  

If you would like to know more about the Ladies Auxiliary, here is a link.

You can join the Auxiliary at that link as well.  We are always looking for new members.  We have a tall order to fill with so many Veterans returning home.  We can use all the help we can get.  

Hope you are having a wonderful fall day.

Happy Scrappin',
